Senator Anderson releases statement regarding the Illinois Supreme Court’s decision on controversial SAFE-T Act

State Senator Neil Anderson has released the below statement regarding the Illinois Supreme Court’s 5-2 ruling today to uphold the controversial SAFE-T Act:

“While today’s ruling severely jeopardizes the safety of Illinois’ residents, it should come as no surprise that the highly political Illinois Supreme Court upheld this extremely dangerous and flawed law. In fact, the Democratic Majority just gerrymandered this very court to ensure it would consistently rule in their favor. Unfortunately, the people of Illinois are left with an ill-conceived law that puts the public at risk and fails to heed the warnings of law enforcement, prosecutors, and judges from all across the state, who have all spoken out against the negative impacts the SAFE-T Act will have on our communities. This is a sad day for our state.”
